9:02 am
center at cape canaveral. meanwhile the impact being felt across the united states. we just talked to the duty manager at sfo. five flights from florida and nine outbound flights are canceled. they are miami, ft. lauderdale and orlando. besides airlines, united jetblue, united and american, ktvu's alex savage is joining us now with the latest on hurricane matthew. >> yeah. unfortunately hurricane matthew strengthened as we expected. now this powerful storm is inching closer to the east coast of florida. florida's governor issued a stern warning to anyone thinking about sticking around and riding out this storm. >> this is not something that you should take a chance with. time is running out. leave. there's no excuses. the roads are open. you should get out. >> the governor says this storm could kill people if they stick
9:03 am
around. matthew the most powerful storm to hit florida in more than a decade. from florida all the way up to south carolina, a lot of people are leaving the coast and heading inland. this is the scene. some areas have seen the highway lanes reversed so that people can move in the same direction on both sides of the freeways to try to ease congestion. many stores they are packed with people. they're stocking up on all of the necessities, food, water, batteries, generators. especially for those sticking around. also gas in very short supply. and also in some areas people are not able to get their hands on fuel. hundreds of shelters have been set up for those who need a safe place to stay during the storm. >> now it's time to hunker down for the storm. please get into a shelter. please get off the roads and go into your home. that is the best way to protect yourself, your family, our first responders and the other residents and folks here visiting in south florida. >> and in the meantime, matthew
9:04 am
has already caused incredible destruction across the caribbean. this is some of the devastation. at least 25 deaths so far have been blamed on the storm which leveled homes across haiti, cuba and the dominican republic. as the storm begins to impact the east coast of florida, beginning later on today, i know some of the outer bands are moving in as steve has alluded to here. the big concerns are the powerful winds bringing down trees and power lines. steve, you said that the other concern is the storm surge which really can cause some really bad coastal flooding and beach erosion. >> it had beach erosion in the last couple of decades by natural causes. some of the areas, the sea level is not high above that. you take storm surge, eight, ten feet, you can change the landscape with a category 4 hurricane. we hope the core of the eye maybe stays on the atlantic side and does not come ashore.
9:05 am
category 4 at 140 miles per hour. it is accelerating north/northwest at 14 miles per hour. somewhere around west palm beach up to melbourne, itch i have seen a couple of forecast projections that take it over cocoa beach and cape canaveral, kennedy space station and one towards orlando. it moves north and then weakens off of the georgia coast and carolina coast and it may wraparound next week and come back. we will have to watch it. that is matthew and then nicole is still a tropical storm but 70 miles per hour. so almost like we can see matthew, that's for sure. miami radar picking that up and the bands moving on shore. look at the core of the eye going over nassau and accelerating rapidly. it looks around west palm to fort pierce that seems to be the focus of the landfall late tonight and more tomorrow morning. interesting to note that water temperature is 86 degrees.
9:06 am
that has lots to feed on. lots of energy. melbourne is just south of cape canaveral. there is orlando. you can see it to the left. that would be right over cocoa, cape canaveral, kennedy space center and space x. if that's a category 4, you're talking 140 miles per hour. what is interesting, gasia, mike, sal, on nassau, there were reports of 50 to 80 miles per hour winds, 25 miles away, 140. >> 25 miles away. >> yeah. so if we can keep the right front quadrant are usually the most damaging. if that stays in the atlantic, we can minimize the damage. if that moves over land, it will be devastation. >> it is. thank you, steve for tracking it. throughout the morning. we will stay on it throughout the day. >> turning to the san francisco giants. they are into the national league division series after winning a wild card game against the new york mets. it was a pitchers' dual at way up to the 9th.
9:07 am
>> 1-1. and a fly ball well hit. right field. bruce is back. turns. and it's gone. >> and that was connor no batting gloves gillespie with the three-run homer. the giants had struggled against syndergaard but he was out of the game by then. bumgarner performed his post season best. he stayed through the bottom of the 9th. a modest bumgarner said it was a team effort. >> our team, all of our guys, you know, we love each other. we love coming to work every day and going to battle for each other. that says it all. without that, you know, there's -- we don't have the success that we do. >> bumgarner has a 23 inning shutout streak in the post season. he is 8-0 in post season starts. well, giants fans, gathered since the game was in new york
9:08 am
here in san francisco and around the peninsula at pubs, bars and restaurants to watch this game. this is what it was like at pete's tavern and pedro's cantina across the street from the at&t park. fans were nervous until the big home run and bumgarner's pitching that ended what a lot of people call torture. >> the giants did it. they came back. all of those doubters. >> we had a rough two and a half months. it's a new season right now. 2016. let's celebrate. let's go giants. >> despite being the low scoring pitching dual. fans say it was one of the best they have ever seen. >> johnny is set to start with the cubs. it's at 6:00 tomorrow night at wrigley field. game 2 is saturday. the series then moves home to san francisco for game three which would be on monday. if necessary, game 4 would be
9:09 am
on tuesday. if game 5 is necessary, it would be back in chicago a week from tonight. >> they have won six of seven. swept the dodgersment went to new york across the country in a loud crowd right there at citi field. got the win. and now they have all of the confidence that you can imagine going into chicago. >> what a different feeling from a month ago. >> when they were sinking and holding on. >> the bullpen wasn't doing well. and it's just one of those things where i think it has a lot to do with bruce who somehow gets that clubhouse to get whatever feeling it is that they get around this time ofaer. >> and the experience. i agree with bumgarner it was a team effort. they took a lot of pitches. 2-2, 2-3 counts not to get specific. by doing that they were able to get syndergaard out of the game after 7 innings and got to their bullpen and threatened in the 7th and the 8th. we saw what happened in the 9th. >> if you were watching you could see the faces of the new
9:10 am
york mets fans getting worried. >> just the tone. he got that walk in the 9th. if he would have been out, they would have walked gillespie and bumgarner is out of the game. off we go. off we go to the city of chicago to take on the cubs. we will be back after the break. >> nice tie, by the way, mike. ♪[music] ♪ don't stop believing ♪

people call at risk. thank you. >> reporter: terry de lane is the principal of life learning academy, a charter school part of the san francisco unified school district. many of her students have criminal records. almost half of them are on probation. >> i got kicked out of the house a few times. >> i got caught with a gun and drugs. like pills and a bunch of weed. >> reporter: the school even has students from rival gangs who sit in class and eat meals together. the students take turns cooking the meals as part of a shared responsibility. and the principal says never one in its 18 years of existence has there ever been a single fight at the school. de lane says that's because before a student is accepted, each of them makes a simple promise. >> give me your word. because you don't have anything else to give me. give me your word to nonviolence and start there. >> reporter: de lane always has

9:18 am
being out at 2:00 in the morning. >> reporter: when a student struggles, de lane doesn't let go. she only holds on tighter. >> we need to prove to people that no matter where you come from which is what i tell them, no matter where you come from, that you're worth something. that you can change. that you're smart. that you can have a future. >> reporter: at 14, darius davis already had a conviction forearmed robbery and had been kicked out of two schools. despite his run-ins with the law, de lane told him she saw the good in him. >> i feel like she really cares about us. after that conversation that we had. she seemed passionate about what she was saying. >> reporter: de lane relates so well with the students because she has walked a mile in their shoes, coming over a past of abuse and addiction. >> i was running away regularly from home. i was getting arrested regularly from home. i overdosed. i had a needle in my arm the

14. i overdosed three times to where i almost died. >> reporter: as a young woman, de lane ended up at de lance estreet, a well known residential rehab program in san francisco. there she learned a principle that changed her life. >> and i had to learn what a family looked like. how you sit down and eat dinner together. how you push each other to do more and do better. and that's what i learned. and what i learned, i give. and what they learn, i expect them to give it to somebody else. >> reporter: there is something else that makes life learning academy unique. it's that 20 of the 60 students who attend class here are considered homeless. meaning they don't have a permanent place to stay from night to night. de lane says after one student died as a result of an unstable home situation, she made a decision to transform a plot of land on the ground that serves as an organic garden into a

9:21 am
3 and a half million dollars goal. they hope to be ready to house students by the end of next year. coming up next, right now a free flu clinic is being held in oakland and san jose. up next, we talk about preparing for flu season with our medical expert. they prey on our children, spending billions.
9:22 am
addicting 17,000 california kids each year. eventually killing one-third of them. now tobacco companies are spending millions to... defeat prop 56. because in every state that's raised tobacco taxes,
9:23 am
smoking rates go down. so who are you going to trust? pediatricians, cancer groups and the califronia pta who all... support prop 56. or the tobacco companies trying to kill it. vote yes on 56. >> welcome back to mornings on 2 the 9. winter is right around the corner and kids are back in school. with that comes cold and flu season. >> flu activity generally begins to increase in the month of october. >> how can you tell between the cold and a flu and should you vaccinate, get that shot or not. we are joined live by ktvu medical expert larry bruchette. >> thank you for the intro. it's good to be here. >> the nasal flu mist is not as effective as the shot. which do you advise patients to get for their children. >> when they looked at the
9:24 am
numbers in the past, the nasal -- the old flu shot was 20 times more effective. and the nasal one i think it was like 3 or 5%. it didn't do much. >> right. so the american board of pediatricians and all of the boards said we don't even recommend that anymore. it doesn't work. >> a lot of people don't want to get a flu shot. the kids get it but not all parents do. i have talked to various people. for whatever reason they don't want to get it. what are the fears? why do people not get the shot even when it's readily available to them? >> one of the common misconceptions is that the flu shot will give you the flu. that's not true. there are some side effects. it hurts. i got mine yesterday and my shoulder hurts a little bit. you may get a fever but it won't give you the flu where you have body aches, feel terrible, sick from the flu. that's one main reason, a misconception that holds people back from getting it.
9:25 am
>> i don't get it. i have two children. they get t i don't get it because i don't really get the flu. i've never had the flu shot. >> knock on wood for you right now mike mibach. >> i need to change that mentality, right? >> this what is i would say to you. not only is there a benefit to you but you can help save lives. so the people who die from the flu are the weakest among us. those who are older, have lung disease, weaker, marginal. if we all -- if the whole heard gets vaccinated then it's less likely that the weakest among us will get it and die. so maybe it's not a benefit for you but think about doing it for the rest of society. >> good point. let me ask you this. i have this debate with my wife about sending our children to school not only with the flu about with a cold. he's fine. he's got a cold. send him off. he's fine. what is the line in the sand in regards to sending children to
9:26 am
school when they're sick? >> i say three things in general. one, if they have a fever, keep them home. there's a couple things to think about. one, is it contagious? is your kid going to give it to other kids? do they have a fever or vomiting or diarrhea. those are spread quick. do they have a bad cuff? runny nose and a little cough, that's okay. can your kid participate in school? are they so sick, are they coughing so much. >> if they're lethargic. >> keep them home if they're not going to get anything out of it. >> when my kid has a fever, we give her something immediately to bring it down. isn't the fever what helps fight whatever she has. >> that's a good question. a fever is a sign that your immune system is identifying virus bacteria, whatever and mounting an immune response. lowering it by tylenol and ibuprofen doesn't negate the
9:27 am
response. it's a sign that things are doing what it should. >> we're all parents of young children and we joke when they get sick. the immune system will be strong when my kid is a teenager. is that true? do a lot of school yard illnesses build up to a stronger body when they're older. >> absolutely. >> good. good. >> there's meaning to them being sick. yeah. it actually puts them in a better position later. it's interesting how we see in the er certain diseases primarily effect young kids. then when you get older, teenage and adult, we don't see them getting it that much. i think that's because you developed the immunity. your antibodies respond when you -- maybe you run into that cold again and fight it off. >> good. >> there are good things we get out of being sick as miserable as it may be. >> thank you for being here. kim kardashian-west is taking a good look at her life
